IonQ Takes Quantum Computing Public With A $2 Billion Deal

1622323766 0x0
IonQ IonQ IonQ has shattered the glass ceiling that previously separated pure-play quantum computer companies from public listed offerings. There were rumors last year that IonQ was considering an IPO. But rather than raising capital with a conventional IPO, IonQ chose to go public by using a merger with dMY Technology Group III, a SPAC (special-purpose acquisition company). The deal will create a combined entity estimated to be worth about $2 billion. A few days after the announcement, Patrick Moorhead, president of Moor Insights & Strategy, and I had an interesting conversation with Peter Chapman, CEO and President of IonQ, and Niccolo de Masi, CEO of dMY. There are hundreds of articles explaining details about the transaction and its structure. Our focus here is primarily on IonQ’s cash injection and IonQ's plans for...

Archer Materials Ltd takes big steps in advancing 12CQ quantum computing chip towards qubit control milestone

The company has completed the preliminary stages of its quantum measurements towards qubit control by successfully characterising optimised and unoptimised QC Devices. Archer Materials Limited () (FRA:38A) has made significant progress in advancing the development of its 12CQ quantum computing chip, which is focused on achieving the major technological milestone of qubit control. It has completed the preliminary stages of quantum measurements towards qubit control by successfully characterising optimised and unoptimised QC Devices.  The information obtained, such as device response to ‘pulse sequences’, will greatly expedite further progress in the 12CQ qubit control measurements.  "Well-funded and on track" Archer chief executive officer Dr Mohammad Choucair said: “We are incredibly proud of these latest results which show that we...
